    Brighton are the next visitors to come to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Winless in the first 4 home matches, Spurs will be looking to secure full points for the first time in the Premier League. Brighton have been playing some really attractive stuff, but it hasn't translated into victories, their last win coming against Preston in the Carabao Cup. Will the unstoppable force or the immovable object win this clash of the inept?

    I normally take Jose at his word, so I'm expecting the team selection to be muchhhh easier for me to predict over the next couple weeks. Only Tanganga on the injury table, which I feel terrible about because this is the season that he could surely cement a place in the back if he was healthy.

    I'll go with this:
    ek's predicted XI
    Lloris
    Doherty - Alderweireld - Dier - Reguilon
    Ndombele - Hojbjerg
    Lucas - Lamela - Son
    Kane​

    Ah newbies...The first rule of being a Spurs supporter is you never, ever talk about winning the league. Very bad things happen to this club as soon as title talk begins (see the 2011-12, 2015-16, 2016-17 and 2018-19 seasons) and it usually begins with collapses against teams like the next 2 we are playing.

    Maybe I want us to lose so I don't have to concern myself about it.

    In all seriousness the year ends in one, it is an open season, and we have a manager that has won three titles.

    Point being he won't get a better opportunity.

    This 4-3-3 is boring to watch but if we can learn to hold on to a 1-0 it is fine.

    That is the most incompetent egotistical refereeing.

    But our lads shouldn't switch off defensively if they want to win.

    Madrid left back to Madrid forward.

    Bale’s back. Didn’t think his first goal would be an unmarked header, but there you have it.

    Though you just know Danny Welback is going to do something

    In general it was good to see Bale come on and score a winner.

    Decent defensive performance over that last 15 minutes.

    We just can't have it all can't we?

    I'm glad the team has figured out how to close games out but everything before stoppage time was crap.

    So it seems Jose's preferred XI is Lloris: Doherty-Toby-Dier-Davies/Reguilon: Hojbjerg-Sissoko-Ndombele: Son-Kane-Moura/Lamela. Eventually Bale will be part of that front 3.

    Dele, Bergwijn, Winks, Gedson, Sanchez and Aurier have fallen down the pecking order. I think Tanganga and Rodon will have a role to play as the season goes on.

    Not sure what is going on with Lo Celso, he has had his injury problems this season, so hopefully it is just a case of Jose easing him back. We are missing a Lo Celso/Eriksen playmaker type in midfield. I think even Dele could play in this position. There were a few times that Poch played him in a deeper position and he was quite effective. We need somebody to put his foot on the ball and control the game. We can get away with a team like Brighton dominating possession because they lack the cutting edge up front, but better teams will shred us if we play like that.

    Dele can play anywhere but he is lacking in confidence and the manager is bitter towards him. Same with Bergwijn. Meanwhile he is patient with Bale and he scores a winner.
